The rainy or cold weather can make walking down the famous Strøget in Copenhagen, Denmark in the off-season a little tiring. There's a little bit of magic just off the main walking street in the form of the Royal Cafe. The high pink walls and large windows let in a lot of light, which reflects off the artfully placed mirrors and display glasses. Rest on funky-patterned seats at small or large community tables and order a coffee or a custom smørrebrød known as a "Smushie" to warm up.
The Smushi may sound far from regal, but these bite sized open-faced sandwiches are fit for a Queen.
Served at the Royal Cafe, at Royal Copenhagen's flagship store, in the city center, Smushis are the perfect little treat to cure your shopping slump. Each bite is a tiny work of art served, of course, on Royal Copenhagen pottery.
The cafe also has a wide selection of beverages, Sunday brunch and an incredible selection of desserts. On sunny days the shady terrace is the perfect escape from the busy high-street outside.
